Support for Stockport Schools – ‘Checkpoint’

Within Stockport, the Pendlebury Centre offers a ‘Checkpoint’ service to our secondary school partners.

Checkpoint is best described as a ‘very early intervention’ service for Stockport schools in which young persons regarded as a ‘cause for concern’ regarding mental health are:

  1. Monitored by pastoral colleagues in mainstream – with a focus on clarifying what their needs and difficulties are, rather than a generic ‘challenging behaviour’ tag that can sometimes occur.
  2. Brought ‘to the table’ to discuss an initial plan of action – this might involve classroom strategies, recommended interventions, parental support and/or referral onwards to other appropriate services.
  3. The Checkpoint also helps colleagues within Stockport secondary schools identify training needs relating to mental health – providing both general training and training around specialist SEMH assessments and interventions.

We also work alongside the following Greater Manchester universities:

College of Health and Social Care (Salford University)

MMU Faculty of Education

University of Manchester – Institute of Education
